"Eco-fashion is the most upcoming trend in fashion. Consumers want to make their purchases special, unique, and most of all, ones where they can make a difference. You can make beautiful, fashion-forward clothing that supports fair trade practices and is made from fibers that are all organic and natural. This trend is only going to be stronger as many major fashion companies are moving towards organic fibers."
- Neha Gupta, vice president and head designer, Sama Baby; available at www.samababy.com
"We were one of the first companies to make bold graphics on kids' tees, which quickly became a huge trend. Now we have taken this to the next level, working with artist Avone to make our clothes an artistic palette of self-expression - bold graphics with true meaning to us."
- Harald and Lynn Husum, founders, Appaman; available at www.appaman.com
"At Oeuf, we don't follow the trends. Our idea is to dress children as children and not small grownups, and to make clothes that are not just pretty but also synonymous with quality and practicality - heirloom quality clothes that are hand-me-downs in the making."
